Try not to lose yourself
I’m way past trying
I’m way past caring
I’m way past hoping


Try not to lose yourself
You’re always needing
You’re always hoping

Wash away your tears

Try not to lose yourself
I’m way past trying
I’m way past caring
I’m way past hoping


Try not to lose yourself
You’re always needing
You’re always hoping

Wash away your tears

Try not to lose yourself (x8)

    General Commenti set lines 2-4 in the first, third, and fourth verses and lines 2 and 3 in the second verse in italics because i think there is a dialog happening in this song, as if the first voice were urging the second not to lose himself and to wipe away his tears. possibly the two voices belong to the same person, and the song chronicles the inner struggle to persevere when all you want to do is give up. that duality is present in the music as well; in the first half of the song, the riff is a descending chord pattern, while in the second half the riff is an ascending one, which gives the effect of newfound optimism after a period of hopelessness. quite moving.
